Chinese New Year

They have food stalls all around the perimeter of the Center. Then we went outside for the Lion Dance.IMG_4561  IMG_4568   IMG_4576IMG_4601IMG_4617But the best part is this….IMG_4610

Then we went to get some Pho…pho1We went to Pho Bac and it is located in a shopping center where they were setting off firecrackers at each place of business. It sounded like it was pouring down rain outside.Then the Dragons were back. IMG_4672  IMG_4674They are setting off tons of firecrackers and yet exhaustion set in on this little one. IMG_4676Happy New Year!

Pho Bac

IMG_4453Today’s comfort food is Pho from Pho Bac on Buford Highway across from the CDCIMG_4455This is the most craveable dish in town.pho1They bring you a plate of sprouts and basil and jalapeños.pho2If you see that little bowl next to the plate it is filled with Chili sauce that I dip the steak from the pho into, yummy!pho 5You can add any of these to help flavor your pho but I love the richness of the broth as is.

Again, if there is anything you would like to see specifically let me know.
